16 Free online activities for children during lockdown

This blog post came about after a chat with a friend of mine who is currently in a similar situation to many, stuck at home with two small children. Social media has been a lifeline for many of us, allowing us to keep in touch easily, giving us access to some amazing resources and information being shared by friends and family. But there are some, like my friend, who choose not to use social media or avoid it for personal reasons and it made the think about the amazing resources she might be missing out on!

Tough Times. Self Isolating and Soup.

The last 7 days have been the toughest in my life. On Wednesday 18th March my Dad finally gave up his fight against Dementia and peacefully passed away, at home, with all his family and friends around him. He was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia in 2014 and after a slow decline over the years he seemed to fall off a cliff in 2019. I was lucky enough to be able to join forces with my Mam and care for him at home 24/7 for the last 6 months of his life and I was holding his hand as he slipped away. I have a whole mix of emotions of course and have a sense of relief that his struggle is over and I would like to thank his GP and all the amazing District Nurses who helped us and Dad in the final days. That will never be forgotten. We’ll also never forget the kindness of friends and family who stayed by our side and kept us going with food and cakes and made us laugh.

Tips for a Good Newborn Session at Tiny Baby Studio

I love setting up the studio for a session, making the room toasty warm and choosing the props and colour scheme while waiting with anticipation to meet this incredible new little person! But I am aware that from a parents point of view it can seem a little daunting and you might feel a little apprehensive especially as it might be the first time you’ve left the house with your baby. So I thought I would try and put your mind at rest and let you know what to expect and how best to plan for the session. Continue reading “Tips for a Good Newborn Session at Tiny Baby Studio”

What’s in store at Tiny Baby Studio in 2019?

January is always a time to reflect and I’ve done that HERE with a rundown of what’s happened in the studio and also HERE with the 2018 weddings, but it’s also the time when I get out my notebook and brainstorm some plans for the coming year. I do this a lot and it’s interesting to look back at the list I did last year! Continue reading “What’s in store at Tiny Baby Studio in 2019?”

Weddings – Did You Know I also Photograph Weddings

Before I picked up the keys to my first studio space, I started on a career path of being a Wedding Photographer. After my own wedding in 2007, I caught the photography bug big time and I began to assist some local established wedding photographers with my little Nikon D40 and D90. Then after more than 20 years as a civil servant, and with the security that job gave me, I handed in my notice and put all my faith, and bank account balance, into the hands of my own abilities.
